OFFSTAGE: Miranda Lambert on Her Job vs. Your Job

(CMT Offstage keeps a 24/7 watch on everything that’s happening with country music artists behind the scenes and out of the spotlight.)

Miranda Lambert takes her job very seriously. Her job, she thinks, is to kind of make you forget about your job. “I think people come to concerts because they want to cut loose for two hours of their life and drink a beer and listen to music and just be out of the problems, because they have to deal with that seven days a week,” she told CMT Radio. “And my job is to try to make people have fun and not think about that stuff.” It’s something to think about today, as you head back to work after celebrating Labor Day. Another way to look at jobs (yours, mine and theirs) is that if you choose a job you truly love, you’ll never work a day in your life. The ancient Chinese philosopher Confucius said that centuries ago, but it’s still so true today.

Alison makes her living loving country music. She's based in Chicago, but she's always leaving her heart in Nashville.
